Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken Kōchi city of Shikoku districts in spring five years ago. Now, in Japan, as for a tram, the route of 19 exists in the whole country. With development of motorization, it was presupposed that it became a cause of traffic congestion, and many routes were abolished in the 1970s. Vehicles run by one car or two cars. In Kōchi, the electric railroad company was established in 1903 and business is done from 1904. The central part in the city and the suburbs of east and west are connected with the present in three routes (the total distance: 25.3 km). It operates around the scale which ranks second to Hiroshima Electric Railway. The stop station of a route is very simple structure. Moreover, the color of the body changes with vehicles, it is various and the device that weariness does not come to a passenger is seen.
